It was the Saturday Night Live + Bridgerton romance that no one knew they needed. But now, Pete, 27, and Phoebe, 26, have reportedly broken up, four months after stepping out in public together (need we remind you of those adorable Wimbledon photos).

“The long distance made it very difficult,” a source told E! News regarding the split. “They had fun, but it wasn’t sustainable being so far apart. It was great while it lasted, but they both agreed it was best to move on.”

Pete and Phoebe set Twitter into a frenzy after attending the U.K.’s Wimbledon together in July. Phoebe was spotted resting her head on the comedian’s shoulder while he kissed her forehead. Move over Duke of Hastings. 

Three months earlier, a source told E! News that Pete was “very into” the Bridgerton star and was even flying between New York City (where SNL is filmed) to the U.K. where the actress was reportedly filming season two of the Netflix show.

While Pete never confirmed his relationship with the English actress, he did speak candidly about his relationships on iHeartRadio’s The Breakfast Club back in May, around the time rumours were circulating.

“I am just very, very honest,” the 27-year-old said. “I think what a lot of people do is they try to put on—not even their best self—but almost a version of themself that they would like to be. And eventually, that will unravel, you know?

“So, I just, off the top, I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m nuts. Here’s all my issues. Here’s what I do. Here’s the therapists. This is what happens.’ And that can either be a lot for someone…or they could be like, ‘Cool, that was really refreshingly honest.’ Or, sometimes it can be a little intense and weird and people can’t handle that stuff.”

As for Phoebe, the 26-year-old hasn’t said much about her relationships. Although, while the first season of Bridgerton was airing, the actress was quizzed as to whether her on-screen chemistry with Simon (played by Regé-Jean Page) transferred off screen.

Phoebe clarified that their relationship was strictly professional in an interview with You magazine back in February. 

“I’d love to say there was really something between us, but no, it has always been strictly professional. There was so much pressure on us to get it right that it was all about the work. We have a really professional working relationship.”
